    1. Social – Govt. intervention in education policy should be minimal: PM – PM Modi said this emphasising that the policy belonged to the whole country, rather than to any particular government in power. Mr. Modi was addressing the inaugural session of the Governors’ conference on the National Education Policy (NEP), which is being attended by State Education Ministers and Vice-Chancellors. The focus of the conference is on the implementation of NEP. The PM urged the States to hold consultations with stakeholders on the implementation of the policy by September 25. With Governors being the Chancellors of the 400-plus universities — which have more than 40,000 affiliated colleges — they have a crucial role to play in the implementation of the NEP.

Constitution and Law – HC’s acquittal in Udumalpet case needs serious consideration: SC – The SC said the Madras High Court’s decision to acquit a man sentenced to death for the daylight murder of his daughter’s Dalit husband in the sensational Udumalpet honour killing case in Tamil Nadu was a “matter requiring serious consideration”. A Bench led by Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul admitted a criminal appeal filed by the State government immediately. The High Court acquitted B. Chinnasamy on June 22. The trial court had awarded him the death penalty. The High Court also modified the death penalty of the hit men Chinnasamy had hired to life sentence. The verdict sent shock waves across the State. The crime dates back to March 2016.

The Pune-based SII is to produce one billion doses of the vaccine. The vaccine candidate, which is among the front-runners in the fight against COVID-19, is now undergoing Phase 3 clinical trials in Britain, Brazil, South Africa and India. In India, trials are on at 17 sites with 1,600 participants and the safety and efficacy of the vaccine is being looked into. Called ‘Covishield’ in India, it [the Oxford-Astrazeneca produced vaccine candidate] is one of the three vaccine candidates undergoing trials in the country, apart from Bharat Biotech’s ‘Covaxin’, and Zydus Cadila’s ‘ZCOV-D.
    6. Business – Chanda Kochhar’s husband arrested in laundering case – The Enforcement Directorate arrested Deepak Kochhar, husband of former ICICI Bank CEO Chanda Kochhar, in a major development which is seen as a prelude to possible drastic action also against the once-celebrated boss of ICICI Bank and Venugopal Dhoot, the chairman of Videocon group. The ED’s action against the Kochhars comes ahead of the filing of a chargesheet in the case, with sources in the antimoney laundering agency claiming that they decided to take Deepak Kochhar, a businessman whose company received funds from Dhoot in lieu of ICICI Bank sanctioning loans to Videocon group, into custody because of his refusal to cooperate. Sources said the Kochhars and Dhoot have been dodging specific questions about the “quid pro quo” established by the money trail.

    8. World – Saudi Arabia sentences 8 to prison in final Khashoggi murder ruling – A Saudi Arabian court jailed eight people for between seven and 20 years for the 2018 murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, four months after his family forgave his killers and enabled death sentences to be set aside. Khashoggi, a critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was last seen on Oct. 2, 2018 at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, where he had gone to obtain documents for his impending wedding. Turkish officials allege he was killed and then his body was dismembered and removed from the building. His remains have not been found.
    9. World – Alexei Navalny, Putin critic who was poisoned, is out of coma and improving – Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, hospitalized in Berlin for several weeks after being poisoned, has been taken out of his medically induced coma. Berlin's Charité hospital said Navalny's condition has improved and he is being weaned off mechanical ventilation. Navalny is responding to verbal stimuli, but the hospital said that it remains too early to gauge the potential long-term effects of his severe poisoning. The hospital only released details of Navalny's condition after first consulting with his wife, who reassured doctors that Navalny would want that information released. The 44-year-old politician, one of Putin's most prominent critics, became ill from poison on Aug. 20 during a domestic flight in Russia.
    10. World – Brexit back in crisis as U.K. threatens to undercut divorce pact – The EU told Britain that there would be no trade deal if it tried to tinker with the Brexit divorce treaty, raising the prospect of a tumultuous end-of-year finale to the saga. In yet another twist to the four-year saga since Britain voted to quit the EU, PM Johnson’s govt was reported to be planning new legislation to override parts of the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement it signed in January. That could jeopardize the whole treaty and create frictions in British-ruled Northern Ireland, where special arrangements had been made to avoid a hard border with Ireland to the south that could be detrimental to the 1998 peace agreement which ended three decades of conflict in the province.

                      • 2. ECONOMY (Prelims, GS Paper 3, Essay paper
                    2.1 The government is planning to set up a new Development Finance Institution (DFI)
                    • It will be used to finance both social and economic infrastructure projects identified under the National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP).
                    • NIP has projects totalling investments of Rs. 111 lakh crore across roads, railways, energy and urban sectors.
                    • The task force on NIP was headed by Atanu Chakraborty (economic affairs secretary).
                    • The DFI  either should be promoted by the government or it should be given a private sector character with the government restricting its holding to 49%. The govt. promoted DFI can raise fund easily.
                    • A DFI with a private sector character will require the government to believe and trust the private sector.
                    • This will require the government to maintain some distance from the private sector DFI institution and let it implement and execute projects aimed at improving the quality of life of all citizens.
                    • Banks being unable to provide long-term finance to infrastructure projects and Asset-Liability management mismatch are the major issues in infrastructure funding.
                    • DFIs are also known as Development banks. They are different from commercial banks which mobilise short- to medium-term deposits and lend for similar maturities. DFIs provide long-term credit for capital-intensive investments spread over a long period and yielding low rates of return, such as urban infrastructure, mining and heavy industry, and irrigation systems.
                    • Soon after independence, the institutional framework for development banking began- IFCI (1948), IDBI (1964), IIBI (1972), NABARD and EXIM Bank (1982), SIDBI (1990), etc but in the past few years, DFIs such as ICICI, IDBI and IDFC have transformed into universal banks as they did not have the advantage of low-cost funding for long term projects.
                    • The road ahead -
                    • To grow India 8-10% continuously, credit growth for infrastructure must be 12-14%. Infrastructure projects require long-term, big scale investments.  So a large DFI is a good idea. Compared with banks, a DFI provides long-term finance for social and economic infrastructure but they involve higher risk than what the ordinary financial system can bear.

                                                                    • Key points – 
                                                                    1. The tiny Pacific nation of Palau has urged the United States military to build bases on its territory -- which lies in a region where Washington is pushing back against growing Chinese influence.
                                                                    2. Palau, though an independent nation, has no military of its own and is dependent on the US for its defence under the Compact for free Association treaty.
                                                                    • Highlights –
                                                                    1. Recently, Palau was visited by US Defense Secretary Mark Esper, during which the Palauan president Tommy Remengesau told Esper that the US military was welcomed to build military bases in his country.
                                                                    2. In addition, he also asserted that Palau was open to hosting land bases, port facilities and airfields of the US military.
                                                                    3. Citing the treaty with Washington, the Palauan leader said that the country must use the  “mechanism of  Compact” to establish a regular US military presence in Palau.
                                                                    4. In addition, he also suggested the US coast guards to have a regular presence and help the nation in patrolling its vast marine reserves, which is as large as the total territory of Spain.
                                                                    • China banned residents from visiting Palau –
                                                                    1. China, which claims Taiwan as a part of its territory, has previously tried to win over Taipei’ allies in Pacific, persuading Soloman Islands and Kiribati to stand against the island.
                                                                    2. The communist nation approached Palau also but it refused. As a result, China banned its tourists from visiting the island nation in 2018.
                                                                                            • [message]
